We have an author who writes mysteries with pastry recipes, a memoir by an ER psychologist, "a day to remember the experiences of Japanese-Canadians in World War II," and an open mic tonight, plus three more readings I'll tell you about right now:

Joseph Stiglitz reads at Town Hall today. Freefall is all about how America caused the current economic crisis, which is clearly baloney, since everybody knows it is because of socialism. Or something.

Adam Haslett will be appearing with Christopher Frizzelle in the penthouse at the Sorrento Hotel tonight. Haslett wrote a great feature for The Stranger last week about Timothy Geithner. Union Atlantic is a novel about money and America. Christopher Frizzelle, who is a very good interviewer (and also my boss) will be facilitating discussion. You can toss questions for Mr. Haslett in the comments here.

Support The Stranger

And Mark Doty reads at Benaroya Hall tonight. Doty is a ridiculously celebrated poet and the author of four memoirs.

The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here. And if you're planning on staying in and you're looking for personalized book recommendations, feel free to tell me the books you like and ask me what to read next over at Questionland.
